In modern design terms, the kitchen is considered to be the heartbeat of the home. While this is largely undisputed, however, there is not enough importance placed on additional rooms that have also evolved to become multi-functional living spaces in 2014. Take the bathroom, for example, which has evolved from being a solely practical room to having luxury connotations and vast, open-plan spaces. In fact, there a number of contemporary trends which are helping to distinguish the bathroom as a unique living space, and will continue to do so throughout 2014.
3 Leading Bathroom Design Trends for 2014
With this in mind, let’s take a look at these trends and how they are likely to impact on British home-owners: -
1. The Use of Dark Wood Flooring
In terms of downstairs spaces such as the kitchen and living room, modern trends are moving towards the use of natural wood finishes and the optimization of natural light. The opposite is true in the bathroom, however, where dark wood effect, porcelain floor tiling is becoming all the range as we enter 2014. With a number of realistic imitation wood patterns to select from, there is an opportunity to create a unique bathroom that offers warmth, comfort and an enduring sense of luxury to everyone who enters.
2. The Popularity of Frameless Showers and Wet rooms
On a similar note, the concept of frameless glazing has taken hold in modern living rooms and encouraged home-owners to create a seamless transition between interior and exterior lines. A similar idea is evolving in terms of bathroom design, where frameless shower and wet room layouts are being applied to create a similar illusion of space and lend a sense of luxury to even smaller, new-build homes. This is an extremely appealing idea to home-owners, whether they intend to get the most form their home or maximize its resale value.
3. The Emergence of the Open-Plan Bedroom and Bathroom
While the notion of an open-plan kitchen and dining area may be well known, the concept of a similar relationship between the bathroom and bedroom may seem a little less familiar. This is set to become a highly popular trend in 2014, however, as home-owners look to combine space in a bid to create a lavish and unique aesthetic. This will require high quality workmanship and the intelligent application of fixtures and fittings, so experienced home-owners may wish to visit the Utopia Group website in order to select viable products and bring their open-plan vision into reality.

I like the idea of the dark floors and the bathroom pictured looks great.ReplyDelete
I like the idea of the wet rooms and frameless showers. It makes it all seem more open. However, I might have to draw the line at an open bathroom-bedroom idea. I'd have to see it in practice.ReplyDelete
